Creating a Powerful Altar for Aphrodite (a Quick DIY Guide)

Updated on:


Written by: Tina Caro

Aphrodite is one of those deities that can help us work on the most intimate parts of our souls. She can also boost our beauty and our confidence. One of the best ways to connect with Aphrodite is using an altar as a vessel to create a bond with her.

But how can we do this if we are newbies and we’ve never done something like this before? Let’s see with this article how to create an altar for Aphrodite in an easy but very effective way!

Why should I create an altar for Aphrodite?

You should create an altar for Aphrodite if you feel a connection with this goddess and you would like her to be your guide to make you feel prettier, more confident and more in tune with your feminine energy.

An altar for Aphrodite is also the best place for casting beauty spells, self-love spells and fertility spells.

Herbert James Draper, The Pearls of Aphrodite, 1907

When should I create it?

You can create the altar for Aphrodite whenever you feel you need it the most. If you are going to connect with Aphrodite to perform rituals related to beauty, self-love, and similar other practices, you can create your alter on a Friday, using the energy of this day of the week to connect with Aphrodite’s energy faster and effectively.

Alternatively, you could do it on a Monday so the moon energy can guide your way to Aphrodite.

How to create an altar for Aphrodite? A step-by-step guide

If there is a space where you dedicate more time to yourself, that might be the right place to create the altar. For example, if you spend most of your beauty routine time in the bathroom you can create it there!

Then you could take a spell bath and ask Aphrodite to guide you and the alter will concentrate Aphrodite’s energy.


Down below you can find a list of the main elements for an altar for Aphrodite. In case those elements don’t seem right to you and your craft, you can choose your own. Simply choose elements that remind you of beauty, fertility, self-love, and confidence.

Light a pink candle to establish an even deeper connection: pink candles are all about self-love, kindness, purity, and emotions. Lighting this candle up will let Aphrodite know that you and she are on the same page and are in tune with these loving vibes.

What should I do next?

You can use the altar for prayers or cast spells but also as a way to spend some time thinking about yourself, your life, and your personal journey.

You can light the candle and incense and say a prayer right before a beauty routine or before casting a spell.

You may want to dedicate one day of the week where you spend more time nearby this altar and work with Aphrodite. As mentioned above about the perfect timing for the altar creation, you can do this on a Monday or on a Friday. Choose your day according to what you would like to attract into your life under Aphrodite’s guidance.

How to store the elements when you’re done?

When you are done you can get rid of the elements the way you prefer. You can add salt and water to a spell bath. The rose could also go in the bath or you can choose to bury all your organic ingredients or let them drift away in a river. If you want, you can store the other elements like the figure of Aphrodite, crystals, and shells to use them for other practices. Simply thank each element and store them in a safe place.
